What are analysts saying about Patterson Companies stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Patterson Companies stock:

  • Stifel Nicolaus analysts commented, "Our accompanying survey diligence (n = 72) highlights near-term market share concerns for Patterson's dental business amid turnover in the company's sales reps and decision not to extend exclusivity for Sirona equipment (largely CEREC and imaging) after September 2017. Longer term, our findings suggest pressure from alternative sources of supply (e.g., Amazon) is creeping into the equation and the prominence of GPOs seems likely to increase, which in short, could shift purchasing power toward the dental practices and curtail future growth. Additionally, competition for large DSO contracts is heating up as evidenced by the recent Patterson / Heartland deal. While Dental and Veterinary continue to offer compelling end market dynamics, the headwinds detailed in our survey keep us on the sidelines with the belief that the lower multiples recently ascribed to these businesses may become the new normal. We reiterate our Hold rating on PDCO and lower our target price to $39 (from $41)." (1/30/2017)
  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "In the past six months, Patterson Companies has been underperforming the broader industry in terms of price performance. Additionally, a disappointing estimate revision trend indicates looming concerns for the stock ahead. Meanwhile, Patterson Companies posted unimpressive results for the second quarter of fiscal 2017, missing the Zacks Consensus Estimate on both counts. Unfavorable foreign exchange rate and higher operating expenses are major concerns at present. The U.S. dental products distribution industry is highly competitive, which poises a major threat to Patterson Companies. Meanwhile, consumable sales at the Dental platform of the company posted lackluster performance in the last reported quarter, which marred prospects in the niche segment. " (1/24/2017)
